Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis Announces Expansion to United States Following Success in Australia and Europe










Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis (OMS), an organization dedicated to improving health outcomes of people with MS through its lifestyle risk modification program, announced today its expansion into the United States.  Recently, OMS unveiled a new website geared toward educating the MS community and announced the publication of two research studies in significant medical journals.

Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis promotes its OMS Recovery Program, a well-established lifestyle program conceived in Australia by Dr. George Jelinek – a doctor, professor of medicine, researcher and MS survivor.  The OMS regimen combines diet modifications and lifestyle management to encourage health and quality of life improvements in MS patients.

"My experience with MS inspired me to study the disease and develop the OMS Recovery Program," said Dr. Jelinek.  "My mother had MS and before she died, she was unable to care for herself.  When I was diagnosed, I was determined not to have the same fate and wanted to help others living with MS improve their quality of life."


Since 2012, OMS has conducted its HOLISM (Health Outcomes and Lifestyle Interventions in a Sample of people with Multiple Sclerosis) study, a 57-country survey of 2,500 people with MS, many of whom follow the OMS Recovery Program. Overall, the study showed significant improvements in health outcomes and quality of life for people with MS on the OMS Recovery Program.

In 2015, two research studies emanating from a HOLISM survey were published supporting the Program.  The first, published in Neurological Sciences, affirmed that positive outcomes are associated in people with MS who follow the OMS Recovery Program.  Another study, published in PLOS ONE, confirmed that lifestyle modifications recommended by the Program could reduce the likelihood of fatigue and depression in people with MS and improve quality of life.

Since its inception in 1999, OMS has worked towards making its Program available to the estimated 2.5 million people living with MS worldwide and has not accepted funding from the pharmaceutical industry.  For more information, visit www.overcomingms.org.
